American expert: Ukraine is not the reason to enter into confrontation with Russia

98

Ukraine is not the reason why the US needs to enter into confrontation with Russia. This is the conclusion reached by Wikistrat analyst Greg Lawson in his article for the American edition of The National Interest.


The American expert warns that Russia is a great nuclear power capable of destroying millions of Americans in the event of a war. In his opinion, the United States can enter into an open confrontation with Russia only in the event of any "vital" threats to the very existence of the States. However, he emphasizes, Ukraine is not such a case, and the situation in Donbass does not threaten the security of the United States.

In addition, the expert is categorically against Ukraine's membership in NATO, since it is Kiev that is the cause of all the problems that have arisen in Europe recently. And Ukraine's admission to the alliance will further aggravate the situation, moving the conflict with Russia to a new level, which no one wants.

The continuation of the confrontation with Russia over Ukraine, explains Lawson, can be taken advantage of by China, which dreams of becoming a superpower and moving the United States in the world ranking. Therefore, Washington needs to switch to other problems, and not come into conflict with Russia.

Meanwhile, the American intelligence community has released another annual report on global threats. Traditionally, Russia has taken first place among those who threaten US security at all levels.

    Consistency, a sign of mastery. Or, as my instructor used to say, "It is not difficult to take first place, much more difficult to keep it." )))

      Amers are threatened by all who do not allow themselves to be robbed! And about Ukraine ... The Anglo-Saxons have invested certain funds in compound feed ... The boar has grown. It is necessary to make a decision on slaughter in order to justify the investment ... But if the meat is not in demand, or it will be bargained at a loss ..., then if it dies, it will be written off for unforeseen losses

            This is yes ... In general, they have a very good conscience to trade, and that's what surprisingly buyers are constantly there. Selling conscience is now in the price ..

          This is just the opinion of some analyst from some magazine. And the reality is simple - the United States is tearing Ukraine away from Russia, climbing there with its hands and feet. With a simple purpose. To occupy a strategic foothold, after which to dictate your terms - not to rock the boat and not to flirt with China, but to become an obedient vassal.
          And I must say - they did it. They will wait for the moment and fit in with the bases of the entire NATO-th. Not to fight, but to threaten and dictate.
          Front line of 1942. Only without Transcaucasia and Central Asia yet.

              For the same purpose for which all countries need them. Including the USSR and Russia. Secure the country. so that none of the neighbors have a desire to change the regime to a "more democratic" one. The Baltic region is a piece of Russia since the time of Peter, conquered from the Swedes in the Northern War. Now what? Give them back, a legitimate right, the Germans gave them the country with their bayonets in the First World War, tearing it away from Russia. One and a half American planes and three disabled people in Lithuania - and what a figurine you can do.

      This will not happen. The loss of Ukraine is the end of the Western world "order".
      And the GDP showed them that it is ready to solve the issue quickly and with little bloodshed.
      Even the Myanmar military is no longer afraid of the "wrath" of the States.
      Pushed on the pro-American government and drive paid protests. Cleaner than Lukashenka.
      It all started there with the fact that they consulted with Russia and China.
      The loss of Ukraine will finish off the remnants of fear of the United States.
      Therefore, negotiations rushed to perpetrate. hi

        Occupation is the imposition of your own laws and orders on the occupied territory of another state! If elections are held in the state and its own government is formed - as happened in 2014 in Ukraine, then this is a coup with subsequent elections, and the state acquires some kind of legitimacy. And what about Why would Russia put on a yoke ??? Yes, because we have such a gene code ... since ancient times, we have lived in justice and help everyone we can ...

        And I doubt they think so. You just need an image of an enemy, from which you need to defend yourself and Europe. But what is Europe - the whole world. Well, for this business to receive grants, tranches and other buns, which can then be easily mastered (i.e., stolen). Well, do not forget who orders all this music. Not slaves just perform it for the sake of the great overseas master.

    And Ukraine is not a reason. And there was no reason. Ukraine is purely a project to inflict the maximum possible damage on Russia while trying to bring it closer to Europe. The damage has been done. Mission ekkomplishd, as they say. And the victory of Ukraine in the war against the LDNR or its defeat in the clash with Russia is an equally good result for Washington, which will gladly look at the process from the outside, and even help with weapons and equipment for free. The main thing is that there are no fools at the borders of Russia who agree to fight with Russia instead of the Americans.

      Secondly, not for free: this is how they NEVER do it.
      Third, the reputational losses of the United States will be so great that the size of the territory given to the Russians will never justify the loss of reputation in the WORLD.
      Fourthly, today the showcase of the "free world" has been smashed to smithereens, the fragments of which are strewn with ALL the States, and the glossy covers, it is even indecent to write what they are used for ... sad

      American expert: Ukraine is not the reason to enter into confrontation with Russia
      It has long been obvious to everyone, except for the stoned skakuas ...And it came to the Kuevskys, very much like that. Someone woke up, sobered up, from the "foggy distance" returned to the sinful earth and no longer give.
      Fick knows them, did they get it? the cigarette butt is going to go crying into Macron's vest, it does not reach him that it was immediately a zero before the comma, and after the comma.

            Wait a minute, now, as the movement goes through the Donbass, which is not planned by skakuas, a magic pendel will immediately fly from the Yankes - here it will begin to reach them, for what merits they are deprived of salary, freebies and the future ...
            And Russia will not give up a piece of land called Novorossiya - from Transnistria to Slobozhanshchina.

    Ukraine is not the reason why the US needs to enter into confrontation with Russia. This is the conclusion reached by Wikistrat analyst Greg Lawson in his article for the American edition of The National Interest.
    This is quite an adequate reasoning. Whether there were such adherents at the top of the mericatosia was a completely different policy.

    Meanwhile, the American intelligence community has released another annual report on global threats. Traditionally, Russia has taken first place among those who threaten US security at all levels.

    There are many cases in history when intelligence conclusions in the pre-war period turned out to be incorrect. Especially among those countries and leaders who considered themselves the most right and exclusive.

      It seems that all these provocations with "Russian aggression" were conceived to fool the people with a further goal - holding a referendum on Ukraine's accession to NATO.

      "On Sunday, 11 April, the law "On the All-Ukrainian Referendum" comes into force. The day before it was published in the official newspaper of the Verkhovna Rada "Voice of Ukraine". Volodymyr Zelenskyy promised to take the initiative first of all during his election campaign. He also announced plans to bring the land market and NATO membership to a popular vote.
      <...>
      According to this law, the initiator of a referendum can be the president or parliament. In addition, the 15th article of the law provides that representatives of society can initiate a plebiscite if they manage to collect at least 3 million signatures of Ukrainian citizens who have the right to vote. In this case, signatures in support of the referendum must be collected at least in two thirds of the regions and at least 100 thousand signatures in each of them. "
      https://russian.rt.com/ussr/article/851508-ukraina-zakon-referendum-zelenskii

      Well, today from Rostislav Ischenko:
      "Someone Ruslan Stefanchuk - the first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, representing the presidential party" Servant of the People "in this position, proposed to put the question to an all-Ukrainian referendum:" Do we agree that elections in the temporarily occupied territories will be held after returning full control over the border? "
      He also wants Ukrainians to decide on a referendum on NATO and EU membership.
      <...>
      In order for Stefanchuk's question to sound correct and allow the citizens of Ukraine to make a responsible choice, it must be formulated follows:
      “Do you support Ukraine's refusal to comply with the Minsk agreements, which inevitably leads to the resumption of Military actions in Donbass, the rapid catastrophic defeat of the Ukrainian army and destruction Ukrainian statehood? "

        Here we need a referendum on changing the Constitution. The current Constitution of Ukraine has already fixed the answer to these questions.

        "Article 102 of the Basic Law changes the powers of the President, and he becomes" the guarantor of the implementation of the strategic course of the state to acquire full membership in the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. "

        This is enshrined as the President's OBLIGATION.

    In addition, the expert is categorically against Ukraine's membership in NATO, since it is Kiev that is the cause of all the problems that have arisen in Europe recently. And Ukraine's admission to the alliance will further aggravate the situation, moving the conflict with Russia to a new level, which no one wants.

      “In 2016, he spoke about the special status of Donbass:“ When you say that Donbass should receive a special status and are going to fix it in the Constitution, it’s like saying: “Okay, Texas will have a special statusbecause we would like Mexico to have more influence in Texas and we are going to get that through the US Congress. " That is, he drew a political structure that would be unacceptable in the United States. If Biden had been a supporter of the implementation of the Minsk agreements, he would not have drawn such analogies. "

    Hello to all.
    The problem of Russia's confrontation with the United States and NATO did not arise yesterday and will not be resolved (if resolved at all, which is unlikely) not tomorrow. Ukraine is just one of the reasons. Unfortunately, in this confrontation we have very few opportunities to oppose anything to our opponents. You can say as much as you like that anti-Russian sanctions only help us to strengthen our industry and agriculture, but this will only be partly true. The main purpose of the imposed sanctions is not to intimidate some individuals or individual companies, but to refuse Russia "long money" for borrowing on international financial markets. And it succeeded 100%.
    Therefore, with all due respect to the current government, I cannot understand why we still call our main strategic opponents "partners" (albeit with irony), and why we consider our brotherly Ukrainian people those who OFFICIALLY and at the STATE level consider us enemies and the invaders.
    How can you conduct a normal dialogue with someone for whom you are an ENEMY and an ENEMY ????
    Or maybe it's time to actually behave exactly as they call us ... and act accordingly ...
    1. God bless him with gas, which we cannot deprive Ukraine, including due to transit, but we can, pushing into the background the interests of individual firms and companies in Russia, COMPLETELY cut off ALL trade and economic ties with this country, sharply reduce entry of citizens of Ukraine from Russia, prohibit ALL financial transactions with this country, squeeze 100% of all Ukrainian investors in our country (and there are such), and so on. And if after that the citizens of Ukraine will feel worse, then why should we be worried about the problems of the citizens of a country that considers us enemies ... Then at least there will be something for them to point fingers at us and say how bad we are ... But this requires a lot courage, determination and, to be honest, rejection of the financial interests of some of our "oligarchs" ...
    2. Maybe it's time to stop flirting with the West, trying to be "white and fluffy" and by our behavior to show that we are good, and the Americans are "byaki, they still do not understand our deep Russian soul and original Russian mentality, and therefore they take offense at us and introduce more and more sanctions ... I think that Russia has tools to pin down the tail of the United States, but no one wants to use them yet because either it is just scary, or their own interests are tied there ... They are wiping their feet about us, but this is can't go on forever ...
    I am not a professional politician, but I believe that in the end such an amorphous foreign policy does not work for the benefit of the state. I do not think that in foreign policy it is necessary to "cut from the shoulder", but I am sure that you need to have the courage and also call things by their proper names, that it is time to end with foreign policy curtsies.
    That the time has come to directly call enemies - enemies, opponents - opponents, and friends - friends ...
